Happy Story Telling!

Now put your story somewhere where everyone can see it, perhaps blue-tac’d to the wall or on the back of a door. As you tell your story stick your characters to the background for each scene, move them about, add people in, mix it up with some fun items or why not have your audience choose what to add to your story as you go along! This is such a fun activity for all ages and really let’s your creative juices flow. Just remember to keep a note of your storyline after you’ve made it up or write it out first and let your characters act it out. We love to see and hear from you and we hope that you enjoy ‘Tell Me A Story’ as much as we do!
